Suspect Arrested After Vehicle Pursuit

DAYTON, April 6, 2016 - On Wednesday April 06, 2016 the Liberty County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office concluded a narcotics investigation, assisted by the Liberty County Precinct 2 Constable’s Office, with the service a felony narcotics arrest warrant.

Precinct 2 Constable’s Office Deputy Chris Dryer recognized a narcotics suspect driving a vehicle eastbound through the Highway 90 river bottom.

Deputy Dryer knew the suspect had an outstanding warrant and attempted a traffic stop to affect an arrest. 

The suspect attempted to flee Deputy Dryer and after a brief vehicle chase, the suspect was apprehended on Trinity Street at Tennessee Street in Liberty, Texas.

The suspect, Darwin Jermaine Taylor, was arrested on a warrant for Delivery of a Controlled Substance in Penalty Group 1, in an amount of 1 gram to 4 grams, which is a Second Degree Felony.

Taylor was transported to the Liberty County Jail for incarceration where he awaits arraignment. 

This investigation began after the Liberty County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office received numerous complaints and tips from the public that Taylor was allegedly selling Crack Cocaine in Dayton. 

A Precinct 4 investigator began gathering intelligence on Taylor and after a period of time the investigator was able to infiltrate Taylor’s activities.

During the course of this investigation, Taylor allegedly delivered Crack Cocaine to an investigator, who was working in an undercover capacity, which resulted in the issuance of a warrant for Taylor’s arrest by Liberty County Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace, Judge Larry Wilburn.
